A statement full of killer's intent was made, astonishing the entire bamboo forest.
Nan Gong Feng forced himself onto the tea house and stared at the two happily chatting people. His face was so cloudy as if rain was about to fall.
Ling Xian frowned, feeling the killer's intent from the man. As strange as he thought of all this, he also felt angry. He was sitting here quietly drinking his tea provoking nobody, yet a person jumped out and threatened him in such a manner. How could he not be angry?
"To speak to me so unwelcomingly, didn't your parents teach you basic manners?" Ling Xian's eyes were cold.
"Hmmph, less bullshit. Stay away from Ning Zhi!"
Nan Gong Feng's Qi continued to pour overwhelmingly and did not even have the patience to ask what their relationship really was. Because in his mind, any man that got too close to Yan Ning Zhi was a target for him to kill.
"So it's because of Yan Ning Zhi…"
Ling Xian had a realization, "What if I won't do as you say?"
"You disobey me?"
Nan Gong Feng's eyes were full of disdain. Qi of the foundational level poured out of him and engulfed the entire tea house. Then another statement full of taunt and killer's intent left his lips.
"Then enjoy death."
The moment his voice trailed off, Ling Xian's eyes turned cold as his anger grew. Looking at the arrogant man before him, Ling Xian sneered, "Every single person who said that to me has died."
Nan Gong Feng laughed out loud and glared at Ling Xian, "Since my cultivation journey started, everyone who's heard that from me has died."
Then, another gush of horrifying Qi washed out of him and shook the tea house.
"Nan Gong Feng, this is Master Xian, an important guest from my clan. If you offend him, you offend me!" Yan Ning Zhi scolded.
It would've been better if she didn't speak. Her statement infuriated Nan Gong Feng.
"You scolded me for this guy?"
Nan Gong Feng's anger flared as he stared down at Ling Xian, "Master Xian, right? I've heard about you. You are merely an expert in arrays, so what? The Yan Clan may respect you, but the Nan Gong House is not scared of you!"
"Shut your mouth!"
After Nan Gong Feng's rudeness, Yan Ning Zhi shot out of her chair and stood between the two of them, "Nan Gong Feng, this is my last warning. He is an important guest to my clan, don't you dare hurt him!"
"Ning Zhi, you…"
Nan Gong Feng's organs were about to explode from anger. Feeling dizzy, he shouted, "Master Xian my @ss! All you do is hiding behind women. If you have the guts, then come out and fight me!"
Hearing this, Ling Xian glanced at him and whispered, "Ning Zhi, back away."
"But…" Yan Ning Zhi hesitated, afraid that Ling Xian would get hurt.
"I said back away." Ling Xian repeated, "Are you not aware of my abilities?"
Hearing this, Yan Ning Zhi remembered how strong Ling Xian was. She smiled from ear to ear and shot Nan Gong Feng a pitiful look before backing away.
The only reason she stood out was because she was worried and somehow forgot about Ling Xian's capabilities.
Seeing how obedient Yan Ning Zhi is, Nan Gong Feng got even angrier. He continued to stare at Ling Xian with a foul smile, "Master Xian my @ss. You are finally standing out. What kind of a man are you if you only ever hide behind a woman."
Ling Xian's expression was indifferent. He slowly stood up, feeling too lazy to chat with this man.
"Hehe, you have been a hot topic these days." Nan Gong Feng sneered, "If I beat you until you are a dead dog, how fascinating would that be."
"If you want to lunge into fame using my head as a stepping stone, then you must have the capabilities to."
If this was merely someone being sarcastic, he would've ignored. But this person came at him without a reason and was planning on beating him to death. Why would he ever just swallow that.
Only one thing can solve this: kill!
"Young man, watch me kill you in three moves!"
Nan Gong Feng made his move. Terrifying Qi rolled out and descended from above!
Everyone's lips parted slightly in anticipation.
"Hehe, this will be a fun show."
"That's right. Nan Gong Feng is the strongest descendant of the Nan Gong House. He suppresses all those in the same generation as him!"
"I think this Master Xian will be greeted with a sad ending. Even though he is very skilled in ancient arrays and surpassed Master Jiang Cheng Zhi, it doesn't mean he is good at battles."
"Yeah, everyone's limited by time and energy. If he is well off in terms of ancient arrays, it means he's had no time to cultivate."
After Nan Gong Feng stepped into the tea house, everyone chimed in their opinions. They very much believed in Nan Gong Feng and did not favor Ling Xian.
This was normal. Based on what they knew, Ling Xian was a very young man who achieved greatness in ancient arrays. This meant he's had no time to cultivate. Nan Gong Feng on the other hand, stood out amongst geniuses in the Nan Gong Clan. Naturally, his capabilities are terrifying.
How can Ling Xian be an opponent of Nan Gong Feng's?
What happened next shocked everyone here.
Towards Nan Gong Feng's attack, Ling Xian's expression was collected, calm, and unchanging. Slowly, he stepped forward one step.
Instantly, his white robe lifted as his terrifying spiritual energy brought fear onto everyone's face.
Ling Xian's Qi locked down the entire tea house. Like the birth of a God, his demeanor was absolutely unstoppable!
At the same time, Nan Gong Feng's expression changed drastically as well. Petrified by the powerfulness, he found himself retreating backwards unwillingly.
"You said you will kill me with three moves, then I… will suppress you with three steps."
Ling Xian marched forward another step. His expression calm as the day but his spiritual energy was violent and aggressive. Like a recently awakened dragon, the strength of his Qi could crack open the sky and earth!
Immediately, Nan Gong Feng's blood boiled as pain overtook his body. He felt like his entire body was crumbling.
However, Ling Xian did not retract his Qi and instead, stepped forward for a third time.
In that second, clouds converged and wind blew, the sky changed color!
Nan Gong Feng puked out a fresh mouthful of blood. No longer able to handle it any longer, his entire white robe was soaked in red before he lunged backwards out of the tea house.
"You overestimate yourself."
Ling Xian breathed out three words. He then grabbed onto Yan Ning Zhi's hand and moved out of the tea house.
Without the support his Qi, the tea house could not longer sustain itself and crumbled in an instant.
At the same time, the entire forest could no longer handle Ling Xian's horror. All leaves fell and all birds fled.
Standing inside the raining bamboo leaves, Ling Xian stood with his long black hair draped down his back. Though he was not moving, his demeanor, like a matchless devil from hell, swallowed all the land around him.
All nine heavens and all 10 hells were silenced!
